"The editors have gathered an impressive array of texts, drawn from sermons, letter, poems, theological treatises, dealing with the theological, spiritual and human dimensions of suffering. . . . I read the book with great interest, and others will, I am certain, find in it many rewarding passages that speak directly and profoundly to the trials of human life." - Robert L. Wilken, Religious Studies Review
